GetTor should help me get the right package from a mirror site

When a package is too big for a provider to accept as an attachment, GetTor will reply with a list of three mirror sites that the user can try instead. However, GetTor does not help the user get the right package from one of these sites.

If I request obfs-windows, GetTor should give me a few hints as to which package I should download from the site (i.e. the one starting with "tor-pluggable-transports" and ending in ".exe"), where I should download the package to, and what to do after that.

An additional bonus would be if GetTor attached the short user manual (English by default, unless a translation exists).

I've lost track of all the variations of this ticket we have, but: don't forget to include sha1's and signatures of the file in the mail too, so the person has a prayer of checking whether the thing she fetches is the right thing.

We don't send attachments anymore, and we always send the links for the packages (unless a help message was required). So this doesn't make sense anymore. Please see #9036 for adding/changing the content of the current GetTor response.
